Driver is a Hollywood stunt driver, flipping cars and spinning wheels for formulaic Hollywood action pictures. But as he likes to say, "It's only part time." By night he's the getaway driver for heist operations, navigating the labyrinth of L.A. streets with a mechanical precision that makes him one of the best in the business.
David Lynch's epic nightmare of Hollywood, which began life as an open-ended television series (like his "Twin Peaks") and evolved into a movie, may be his masterpiece. A leisurely film noir that turns into a surreal montage, it is a portrait of Hollywood filtered through the director's personal iconography, which in many ways is more early 1960's than contemporary in mood. The story traces the loss of innocence of a dewy Hollywood hopeful (Naomi Watts) who befriends a mysterious amnesia victim (Laura Harring) searching for her identity. Their journey figuratively plunges them through the looking glass into a phantasmagoric dream world. — Stephen Holden
